 Jenny

 * lead teacher * founder * organization *

“Yoga for me is a holistic concept of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. I truly believe that a serious yoga practice helps us to connect with ourselves, with those around us, and in good moments, with the whole universe. I truly believe in the power of yoga for inner and outer change”


Jenny´s yogic path began when she started practicing Devi Yoga with her teacher Sridevi Saraswati in 1999. While she practiced with many different teachers from various traditions, she remained passionate about classical hatha yoga. She is a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher in the Sivananda tradition since 2011, and holds a Yoga Vidya certificate in Pregnancy Yoga. In her classes she combines classical hatha yoga with influences from various yoga traditions, and always emphasizes pranayama and breath awareness. Since 2014 Jenny is living in Kosovo. She teaches yoga in Pristina, including asana, pranayama, meditation and yoga theory, and she also trains and coaches teacher trainees. Jenny was one of the main organizers of Shanti Yoga Fest in 2016 and 2017. In the Yoga School Kosovo Jenni teaches Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Yogic Lifestyle and teaching methodology.

Therese

* lead teacher * founder * organization *

“Yoga for me is an attitude towards life and a passion. By practicing physically, we can get in touch with our inner world and feel the reflections of our psych in the body. Yoga helps me to get in balance and peace with myself and learn to open up to the world and all its beauty. By practicing Yoga I can become the best version of myself and thereby make a change in the world. Yoga is my tool for making this world a better place.”

Therese came in touch with Yoga in a very early age and has been practising for her entire life. Since 2013 she teaches Hatha Yoga. She practised with many different teachers around the world such as, Monika Schwoboda, Ulrike Grundert, Sri Louise, Alison West, Manju Jois, Claudia Hitzenberg and several others. By now she has done over 820h training and is certified by the standards of EYU (European Yoga Union) as well as the Yoga Alliance. She has done several additional workshops in the fields of Ashtanga Yoga, Spiraldynamik® and Yoga and social change. Though for the last years she chose a nomadic life style, she is currently settled in London to deepen her academic knowledge of Yoga by studying a MA in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation at SOAS. Here she is specifically interested in the correlation of gender and Yoga. At the Yoga School Kosovo Therese is one of the lead teachers. She teaches Yoga history, Yoga philosophy, asana, alignment and teaching methodology.
